Multifasciatus Shell Dweller
The multifasciatus shell dweller, or multi shell dweller, actively defends his little territory around his shell – which doesn’t need to be big since these little Tanganyikan cichlids only grow to two inches. The multi shell dweller cichlid is prized for the attractive light blue and brown stripe pattern on the body and his pugnacious attitude. All shell dwellers are hardy and great additions to community tanks and peaceful cichlid tanks. These small fish love their shells so try to keep a few in the aquarium that are light weight and not too large for them to manipulate but large enough for them to get into.
